Spending Practices Still



Cause Board Discord


Port St. Joe was saddened and
shocked this past week to have two
people killed on City streets, after
going a year with no highway
fatalities inside the city limits. The
last highway fatality in Port St. Joe
was last November, when a young
Calhoun County man ran his car into
the bumpers at the dock at the end of
First Street, causing his death.
The entire county was shocked
and saddened, feeling a sense of
extreme loss, when Dr. Shirley
Simpson'was killed instantly in a
collision at the intersection of Long
Avenue and Fifth Street last Thursday
morning at about 8:30 a.m.
Police investigators said indica-
tions are that Dr. Simpson didn't stop
for the intersection as she was
proceeding up Long Avenue toward
her office. Her vehicle continued
across the intersection into the path of
a cement mixer truck, owned by
Griffin Concrete Company and driven
by Billy Griffin of Port St. Joe.
Witnesses said the concrete truck
started blowing .its horn immediately
when Dr. Simpson's car pulled into
the intersection. City Patrolman Jim
Savage reported the truck skidded its


brakes for 48 feet and eight inches
before the impact. After striking Dr.
Simpson's car broadside inr the
passenger side, it pushed the car
another 50 feet before coming to a
stop. Officer Savage estimated the
truck speed at approximately 35 miles
per hour before Griffin.started trying
to stop it before the impact.
After questioning five witnesses
to the crash, Savage said there would
be no charges filed against Griffin.
"There was just nothing he could do to
prevent the accident", he said.
A front power take-off assembly
on the truck smashed completely
through the front seat of Dr. Simp-
son's 1983 Mercury, pinning her
against the door on the driver's side.
She was killed instantly.
McINVALE, KILLED
TUESDAY NIGHT
Tuesday night, at about 8:30 p.m.,
Albert Lee McInvale became the
second traffic fatality inside the City
in less than a week, bringing to three
the number of people killed in
highway accidents inside the county
thus far in the year.
McInvale was struck and killed by


a Thunderbird driven by Wayne
Stevens' of St. Joe Beach near the
Seventh Street intersection on Monu-
ment Avenue.
According to Port St. Joe Police
Chief, Robert Maige, investigating
officers learned that McInvale had
accosted Leroy Jones, who was
parked at a convenience store on the
street, to take him to St. Marks. Jones
said Mclnvale had offered to pay him
$30.00 for the trip, but Jones refused.
McInvale then turned and started off
across Monument Avenue. A car, with
an unidentified driver swerved .to
miss him and Stevens' car, following
behind, struck McInvale with the left
side of the grill and the left headlight,
knocking him for 75 feet. McInvale
was pronounced, dead at the scene.
Stevens said he didn't see Mc-
Invale until he loomed up in front of
his car;
McInvale had lived in and around
Port St. Joe for several years, taking
odd jobs on occasion
The accident was investigated by
Port St. Joe officers Greg Cole, James
McGee and Durward Smith. No
charges will be filed against Stevens.

Hospital Sale Consummated As


HCMC Takes Over Management


City Gets $200,000 Cash Payment In Deal


final papers, Health Care,
Management Corporation
of Columbus, Georgia,
finally Officially took over
ownership of Gulf Pines
Hospital here in Port St.
Joe Sunday at midnight.
The corporation and
Baptist Medical Center of
Jacksonville had been try-
ing to get the last name on
the dotted line for at least a
month, after spending sev-
eral weeks negotiating and
getting the City of Port St.
Joe satisfied on the mort-
gage the City holds on the
facility. Monday, at about
2:30, representatives of
Baptist Medical Center
and HCMC found them-
selves in the same place at
the same time and quickly
inked the final documents,
officially transferring the
hospital ownership.
One of the roadblocks
holding up the sale for
weeks was a reverter
clause in the property deed
on which the hospital sits.
Formerly Municipal Hos-
pital, it was built in the
early 1940's with funds and
labor donated by the peo-
ple of Lhe C'ty. The proper-
ty was donated by St. Joe
Paper Company, with a
reverter clause giving the
property back to the com-
pany if it should ever cease
to be used for a hospital.


Baptist wanted the clause
removed to help the new
owners obtain financing,
but the City refused.
At the sale Monday, the
City received a check for
$200,000 representing a
portion of what Baptist
owes the City for unpaid
annual payments. In addi-
tion, Baptist owes the City
an additional $276,000
which it has agreed to pay
in $50,000 increments until
the obligation is met.
The City will use the
$200,000 received to cover
insurance costs which
jumped a total of 25
percent this year. In addi-
tion it will make payments
on the State Compensation
Fund, which the City was
found to owe from the days
it operated the hospital.
This year, the payments
will amount to about $40,-
000. A portion of the money
will go to pay for the
over-run on the City's
share of the garbage com-
pactor being built north of
the City in a joint effort by
Port St. Joe and Gulf
County.
Last year, before Baptist
considered selling Gulf
Pines, the City had forgiv-
en a portion of the money
owed if Baptist would,
instead, put an agreed
amount into new equip-
ment to the hospital, turn-


ing the title to the equip-
ment over to the City.
Before all the equipment
could be put into place,
Baptist found the interest-
ed buyer and started nego-
tiating to sell Gulf Pines.
The amount of the pur-
chase price for the sale is
not known, but is expected
to be at least $476,000-the
amount Baptist owes the
City-and possibly more.
In addition to insisting
the reverter clause re-
main in place in the new
deed, the City also insisted
that all hospital employees
be guaranteed their bene-
fits without disruption.
One of the problems with
the Baptist purchase was
that the City had hospital
employees covered under
state benefits. Baptist
medical, however, had
their retirement and other
benefits with private con-
cerns and there was a
problem getting the two
plans reconciled.
The City Commission
has never had an interest
in getting back into the
hospital business. The
Mayor and Commission
has taken an active part in
the sale arrangements for
the past year to see that
the City maintains hospital
service but that it be under
private management and
ownership.


After several months
of trying to bring every-
thing together and sign the


Young Wewa Boy Tests Honesty Successfully

Wewahitchka has at least one very honest
young man in its midst.
Jason. Miller proved recently he could be
.. trusted in the weightier matters as well as the
smaller matters, when he turned a large
,.amount of money he had found at a football
game, over to school authorities to locate the
*"rightful owner.
Miller, a sixth grader at Wewahitchka
Elementary School, was walking toward the
concession stand at a junior high game with
Apalachicola on September 26, when he noticed
.something green on the ground. That "Some-
thing green" turned out to be $690 in cash,
which had been lost by E. Sizemore, Jr., of
Apalachicola, who was attending the game.
Miller turned the money over to school
principal S. M. Eubanks, who located the
owner, Sizemore.
Sizemore gave Miller a cash reward for
returning the money.
Tuesday, the Gulf County School Board
recognized young Miller at their meeting

THE STAR
THURSDAY, OCT. 10, 1985 PAGE.TWO


Our community hospital has
changed hands this week, with
Baptist Medical Center selling the
institution to Health Care Manage-
ment Corporation, with home base
in Columbus, Georgia.
- While great expectations were
felt when the hospital was sold to
the Baptists, who run a top-notch
hospital with the latest of equip-
ment and procedures performed at
their center in Jacksonville. It was
thought some of that hospital
quality and medical experience
would rub off on the Port St. Joe
hospital and make it a medical
marvel here on the Gulf Coast in
the Panhandle.

It just wasn't the case. Even
-though they seemed to be genuinely
interested in turning Gulf Pines
into a medical center which was
Used and functional, they just
Didn't seem to know how to go
about it.
There is a difference in running
:any kind of business in a population
center and out in the boondocks,
"such as it is here in Port St. Joe.
For instance, here at The Star,
:we hardly ever have a staff
'conference meeting to decide
which of our many stories go on the


front page for the week and where
on the front page should each story
go. We just go ahead without the
conference and try to pick out
enough stories to fill up the front
page. Our priorities are different.
We're sure it's different with
hospitals, too.
The Baptists were waiting for
more business to install more and
newer equipment. Without the
equipment, there was no business.
A matter of which comes first, the
chicken or, the egg.
We think the Baptists intended
for Gulf Pines to be a feeder
institution for the Jacksonville
center and it was just too far away.
The new owners seem to be
willing to put in whatever is needed
to make Gulf Pines an effective
healing station. No more will the
hospital be a "band-aid station",
they say.
We welcome the change and
will anxiously await the .improve-
ments and the excitement to
become reality, which HCMC peo-
ple are generating.
We need the hosiptal function-
ing, effective, used, available and
deserving of the confidence the
people should have for it.

If Miss Belle Could


Only See Me Now


A couple of years ago when
I was in elementary school
my mom would take us to
those PTA carnivals at
school. I would give Miss
Belle my dime and take a
chance on the cakewalk.
They'd play an old record of
some kind and I'd step on
those big numbers Miss
Belle had taped to the floor.
We'd go around that circle
till the music stopped- and
I'd look down to see that I
had stopped on number 17.
Good ole lucky 17. Then Miss
Belle would pull a number


out of the box and call out in
her official cake-walk-call-
out voice "Number 5" and
John Ingram's mother walk-
ed off with my cake.
If cotton was good that
year my mother gave each
of us 50 cents and I looked
around at everything they
had at that carnival but I
spent all my money trying to
win a cake. I didn't want to
bob for apples or "fish" for
plastic whistles or throw
darts at balloons -- I wanted
Miss Belle to call out the
number I was standing on.


She never did. Shucks, in
nine years of going to that
carnival I never did win a
cake.
You'd figure that those
nine years of futility would
have taught me a lesson.
Some people are just not sup-
posed to win anything that's
being raffled off. Of course
as I got older I realized that
I'm not supposed to win -
I'm just donating my money
to whatever organization is
raffling something off. Just a
few weeks ago I was at a
football game in Sneads


when a lady stopped me as I
was a'going to the conces-
sion stand and asked if I
wanted to buy a chance on a
pineapple upside down cake
the band boosters were "giv-
ing away" at halftime. No I
didn't but I donated my
dollar to the band and took
my ticket anyway. I didn't
think about it again until
halftime when they didn't
call out my name. I wasn't
too surprised nor disappoint-
ed. Like I said some folks are
just not supposed to win
those raffles.
I'll tell you how bad my
luck is on those raffle things
- when I was in high school
the pep club got an idea for
raising money. They'd had a
picnic out at Everitt's Lake
and the girls were to bring a
box lunch and the guys
would pay a dollar for the
basket which you then got to
eat with whoever (or is that


COLBERT
whomever) fixed the lunch.
They numbered the boxes
and each guy plunked down
his money and drew a
number. Everyone was a
winner 'cause they only put.
as many numbers in the hat
as they had box lunches. I
drew.ole lucky number 12 -
Billie Ruth Bronson's lunch.
That made me a winner? She
fixed peanut butter sand-
wiches. I thought you put
chicken in box lunches; and
boy howdy, no one could talk

In the first third of this century, Port St. Joe
was a regular port of call for a fleet of sailing
vessels picking up cargoes of naval stores,
lumber, fish oil and salt fish. In the '30's the sail-
ing traffic began to fade out of the picture, giving
way to motor ships.

The schooner J. W. Clise shown above at the


Port St. Joe dock, was the last four master to call
at Port St. Joe. She entered on December 5, 1939
under the command of Captain Copsey and was
piloted by the late Fred Maddox. The schooner,
owned by Putnam Lumber Company loaded a
cargo of lumber from St. Joe Lumber and Export
Company. Later on she was lost in a storm at


sea.

Entire Community Will Miss the Friendship and Service of Dr. Shirley


IT ISN'T OFTEN we use this
space for anything of a serious nature.
This past week, however, the entire
community lost a dear friend and
concerned healer to death by accident
and I feel it is permissable to deviate
from the normal this week, while we
all pause to reflect for a moment on
the great loss we have all suffered in
the death of Dr. Shirley Simpson.
Dr. Shirley wasn't with us here in
Port.St. Joe all that long. She had been
here only about 18 years, but during
that time, she earned a place in our
hearts as one of those doctors a
community talks about in fond and
hushed tones for years and decades to
come.
Port St. Joe adopted Dr. Simpson
and Dr. Simpson adopted us. Dr.
Shirley's parents were dead when she
came to Port St. Joe, so you might say
she was an orphan at the time, even
though she had an aunt or two and
some foster parents when she came
here.
I have heard her say several
times, she came here only to fulfill
that part of her medical education
contract which said she must practice


in a small community for a number of
years in exchange for some of the
tuition for her medical education.
She came here and became so
involved in the well-being of the


doctor, mechanically, I wouldn't
know. Since healing comes mostly
from the mind and confidence in the
one who is doing the treating, Dr.
Shirley was aces as a medical person.

Nor, would we have had her leave.
8ut, she did leave, suddenly, on

was still needed here.

or not she was an exceptional.

esley R. Ramsey


The practice of. Dr. Shirley was
filled with patients who -were very
young and very old. She had a way
with making children at ease when
they had to come to the doctor and she
cared for and ministered to the aged
and infirm of our community, whether
or not they were one of her formal
patients and whether or not they could
get to her office. She made regular
rounds at the homes of many of the
aged who might have had their


DR. SHIRLEY didn't pay much
attention as to whether her clothing
befitted the occasion, nor whether her
shirt and pants matched, or whether
her coat was appropriate for where-
ever she found herself. She dressed
for work, because that was what she
did most.
The good doctor didn't eat cor-
rectly, nor did she rest enough. She
would wolf her food down and get on
her way in just a few minutes at


mealtime. There was always some-
thing she had to do. There was
something she had to do, the morning
she was killed, when she ran through
an intersection right into the path of a
cement truck. She was preoccupied
with where she was going and what
she was going to do when she got
there.
She apparently didn't know what
hit her.

ON SEVERAL occasions, I would
walk by her house on my evening walk
and she would be out relaxing with her
two Huskie dogs. She'd stop me to
talk, and invariably it was about
someone who was in bad shape. She
was worried about them.
She doctored most of my grand-
children and she always asked about
them, even though they may have just
left her office the day before.

I FIRMLY BELIEVE that if Dr.
Shirley hadn't been killed in the
accident which snuffed out her life,
she would have worked herself to
death. Many say it isn't possible, but

Shirley K. Ramsey ................... Typesetter


when you work 24 hours a day and
constantly have the welfare of people
who have needs on your mind, I think
it is possible to work oneself to death.
I understand that one of the things
Song doctors'are taught in medical
school is not to get involved with or too
attached to their patients because the
strain and concern will definitely
affect their well being.
I can understand that. It's possi-
ble to be too concerned.
Evidently, Dr. Shirley was absent
that day, because she definitely
became involved with and took a keen
interest in everyone around her. If
they could pay for her services, fine.
If they could not pay for her services,
they got doctored anyhow.
In short, Dr. Shirley Simpson was
a doctor any town could covet. She
was the kind of doctor every town
needs and seldom gets. She was a
'credit to her community, to mankind
and to God, whom she worshipped
regularly.
In short, Dr. Shirley Simpson was
a good compassionate friend, as well
as a doctor, and we'll all miss her.

agreed to pay any bill which project
inspector E. F. Gunn sets his
signature t6 in approval. "Chairman
Money's signature was merely attest-
ing to Gunn's signature", Branch
said.
Gates held his ground, pointing
out that paying for the change orders
and the additional dirt would run the
project to a total of $430,837, which
was more than the $384,530 agreed on
at last year's budget session.
Gates went on to point out a way
out of the delimma, saying he was
only interested in following accepted
budget procedures.
"The City of Port St. Joe has
already paid us $40,000 as their share
of the over-run. Since one of the
change orders has not been completed
and will not have to be paid in this
past year's budget, you can make a
budget amendment, including the
payment just received from Port St.
Joe as additional revenue. You will
then be within your budget, but you


must take these procedures to stay
within the law as I see it", Gates
pointed out.
Once Gates provided the solution
from the delimma, tempers seemed to
cool off some and the Board joined
forces in hastily approving a budget
amendment to the construction pro-
ject.
OTHER BUSINESS
In other business matters, the Com-
mission:
-Announced they would partially
open the new White City park at the
old U.S. Corps,of Engineers site. The
boat landing and playground will be
open, but the building will still be
closed until proper sewage and
electrical services can be made.
-Received a refund of $14,757
from Property Appraiser Kesley
Colbert, which amounted to nearly 20
percent of his budget last year.
Colbert joked, "I'm conservative, but
my wife has another word for it."

Ruth wasn't looking I chunk-
ed that stuff into the lake. It
sank like a rock and I knew
I'd lost another raffle.
I don't even try to win
those raffles any more I
just donate my money to
whatever club or organiza-
tion is needing it. I've pur-
chased tickets to win cows,
gasoline, waterbeds, hams,
guns, vacation trips; cakes,
afghans, turkeys and I don't

I'm not supposed to win.
A guy called me last night
from Bristol, Florida, told
me he was with the Lions
Club up there and that I had
won the shotgun they had
raffled off. I told him that he
must have the wrong person.
He said, "Are you Kesley
Colbert and do you live at
1310 Garrison Avenue, Port

said it must be some other

one person in the Bristol

don't remember buying a
ticket on a shotgun. A
shotgun of all things. I would
have rather had the pine-

What I need is a T.V. set. I
don't even know what a

don't know anything about

DO YOU WORK WITH
A COMPUTER?
More and more people are
using computers. Those who
spend several hours a day in
front of a computer should
have their eyes examined at
least once a year. This re-
commendation has been
made not only by optome-
trists, but by.NIOSH (Na-
tional Institute of .Occupa-
tional Safety & Health, a
branch of the U. S. Depart-
ment of Health).
The working distance of a
computer's video display
screen typically is different
from that of a fiaewriter. If
you use traditional "reading
glasses" they wdre probably
prescribed to correct seeing
problems at a near distance
of 16 inches. The computer
screen is usually viewed
from a greater distance.
Special prescriptions are
often required for computer
users who require reading
glasses or bifocals. A bifocal
set higher than usual can
help the user avoid tilting his
head back when looking
through the near section of
the bifocal, thus alleviating
strain. Trifocals or progres-
sive lenses have also proved
effective, too.

to report a very successful
membership drive for the

greater than the number of

thus qualifies the local PTA
for the 100% Membership
Award from the state PTA.
By-having 100% of the facul-


ty and administrative staff
of the school enlisted in the
PTA, Port St. Joe Elemen-
tary has also earned the
100% Faculty Award. These
goals were met previous to
the October 15 deadline
established by the state PTA
as the criterion for the Early
Bird award.

Wewa Wins Their

Third In A Row


Stan Peters ran for four
'touchdowns and Doug Robin-
son recovered a Shark punt
:in the end zone, fumbled by a
:pressured Havana receiver
'to fumble, to take a lop-sided
33-0 District win last Friday
;night.
Recovering even more
from the trauma of having
!their head coach resign after
the first game of the season,
the Sharks again put up their
.stout defense against the
Gladiators and showed im-
provement on their offensive


Both a master's and a
specialist's degree program
in secondary school mathe-
matics will begin at the
Florida State University
Panama City Campus spring
semester, 1986. Detailed in-
formation concerning the


timing as they went after
their second win- of the
season.
The Sharks scored in every
period except the third.
If football games were
judged like boxing, the Glad- `
iators may have been award-,
ed the third on points. For the
first time in the game,
Havana invaded Port St.
Joe's half of the field. The
Gladiators moved to the
Shark four before a clip -
penalty and two straight
quarterback sacks by Terry


program and admission re-
quirements are available
from the Admission Office.
Interested persons are asked
to contact the Admissions
Office as soon as possible
because of the December 2
deadline for application.


Farmer, Doug Robinson and
Arthur North pushed the
Gladiators back to their own
side of the field. In all, the
pursuing Shark defense had
set the Gladiators back 51
yards in three downs.
Peters scored first on a
one yard plunge in the first
quarter on the Sharks second
possession of the ball.
In the second period, Rob-
inson covered a Gladiator,
-fumble in the end zone for a
touchdown and Peters plung-
ed over from five yards out.
In the last period, Peters
scored on a seven yard run
after recovering a Havana
fumble and scrambled for
seven more yards on another
occasion for the touchdown.
Josh Jenkins kicked three
extra points out 'of four
attempts and one pass (or
two extra points failed.
Arthur North and Doug

with 11 tackles each. John

FRIDAY NIGHT
Friday night, the Sharks
take to the road to DeFuniak
Springs to meet the Walton
County Braves. Game time is
8-30, Port St. Joe time.


Doug Robinson of the Sharks sacks Havana's quarterback with a crunching tackle, causing
Wright to turn loose of the ball. Terry Farmer (76) and Randy Wilder (44) of the Sharks close in
to assist Robinson in the sack.


Billy Joe Smiley plunged
across the goal line from five
yards out and Paul Groom
kicked the extra point to give
the Wewahitchka Gators a
one point victory, 14-13, over
the Sneads Pirates last Fri-
day night before a packed
stadium.
The Gators, notching their
third.win in four starts, are
undefeated in District
games, which puts them at
the top of the heap.
The Pirates scored first in
the game, when the passing
combination of Michael Bax-
ter to Shannon McCord,
clicked for a 25 yard scoring
strike mid-way in the first
quarter. McAlpine kicked the
extra point, and the Pirates
were ahead, 7-0.
The Sneads lead didn't hold
for very long, when John
Dady recovered a Sneads
fumble about mid-way in the
second period. Smiley hit,
David Paul with a 28-yard
scoring pass and Groom
kicked the extra point to knot
the score.
The Gators had missed an
earlier opportunity to score,
when Al Colvin picked off a
Baxter pass on the Gator
five and ran the length of the
field to the Sneads eight. One
of the Gators three penalty
calls nullified the run and the
ball was called back to a less
threatening position for
Sneads.
The Gators again had the
opportunity to put the game
away in regulation time
during the third period, when
Groom blocked a Sneads
punt at the Pirate eight. The
Pirates put up a goal-line
type defense and shut off the
Gator threat on a fourth and
goal from the one.
In overtime, the Pirates
tried to put the game into
double overtime when Clif-
ford Scott plunged over from
the one. Sam McAlpine's kick
for the extra and tying point
was wide of the mark and the
Gators earned a hard one.
Brook Wooten led the Ga-.


tor defense with 15 tackles,
with Mike Harrison and Paul
Groom with seven.
FRIDAY NIGHT :
Friday night the Gators
will be on the road to
Apalachicola to meet the
re-building Sharks.

Football, Fall and the "Fuel Charge"


SAutumn in Florida!

A time of year to look forward to... a time for "big games," tailgate parties
and cooler temperatures.

'' To a lot of us, it means less air conditioning... a chance to lower our electric bills.
To Florida Power, it's our chance to lower the "Fuel Charge"
(what you pay us to pay for fuel).

*Our economical combination of nuclear and coal-fired generation
has replaced much of the oil needed during the hot summer
months, so we're saving money. And when- Florida Power
saves money on fuel, our customers save money.
Just like fall and football games...
the lower the cost of fuel,
the lower the "Fuel Charge."

They go hand-in-hand.

HRS Starts Drive to


Notify Day Care Centers

of Need to be Registered


A drive to inform all family
day care home operators that
they are now required to be
registered has been an-
.nounced by the Department
of Health and Rehabilitative
Services (HRS).
"This new requirement
was mandated in the child
care bill passed. by the 1985
legislature," stated Peter M.
Kreis, director of the HRS
Children, Youth and Fami-
lies Program Office.
The new law defines family
day care homes as those:
SReceiving a payment, fee or
grant for any of the children
receiving care; Providing
care for no more than five
preschool children, including
the operator's children, from
more than one family unre-
lated to the operator; and,
providing care for no more
than five elementary school
siblings of the preschool
children who are receiving


care in the home.
Family day care home
operators must complete a
registration form which
gives: the name and address
of the home; the. name of the
operator; the number of
children being cared for;
and, the availability of emer-
gency care.
According to Kreis, there
will be no registration fee.
However, failure to register
is a first degree misdemean-
or.
HRS Childrep, Youth and
Families office will coordi-
nate registration in Gulf
County. Family day care
home operators should con-
tact the office in their county
to request registration ma-
terials and additional infor-
mation, if needed. In Port' St.
Joe, call 229-6865; Wewahit-
chka residents may call

People,


Natural Gas


& Safety


Natural gas supplies vitally needed
energy to thousands of homes, businesses
and industries in Florida. Energy, whether it
be in the form of gas, electricity, oil, water,
etc., when uncontrolled can be dangerous.

Even though a record of safe operations
has been established over the years by the
regulated gas industry, knowledge of the in-
formation contained in this ad can assist you
in recognizing a potentially hazardous condi-
tion and take appropriate action to safeguard
life and property.


Q. What Are Some of the Characteristics Of
Natural Gas A User Should Know?
A. Natural Gas is a mixture of hydrocarbons
composed mainly of methane and exhibits
the following characteristics:
1. Odorless-an odor is added to this gas.
2. It is lighter than air and if released will
rise into the atmosphere unless trap-
ped.
3. It is nontoxic. However, as with any bur-
ning process, incomplete combustion
will form carbon monoxide which is tox-
ic.
4. It is colorless.
5. It has a flammability range of from
four% to 14% (approximate values by
volume of gas to air).


, Q. Is Natural Gas Dangerous?
A. Gas, like all forms of energy, is capable of
doing damage and must be used properly.
However, the experience with natural gas
use shows it to be ;more safe than other
energy sources which you use in your
home or business.

Q. What Should You Know About Gas Odor?
A. 1. Natural gas doesn't normally have an
odor.
2. A substance is added by your gas com-
pany to give natural gas a "rotten-egg"
smell should it escape.


3. Become familiar with the smell. Should
you detect this odor, it doesn't positive-
ly tell you that there is a gas leak; but
this is sufficient reason for you to call
your gas companyand have them in-
vestigate.

Q. What Additional Ways Can You Detect A
Gas Leak?
A. .1. When the ground is wet, you may detect
a leak by seeing bubbles rising through
puddles of water in a uniform manner.
2. A larger leak of gas from underground
piping may be able to be seen by sand
blowing around a small hole in the
ground; it may be felt just as you may
feel air leaking from a small hole in a
tire or air hose; and if it is a large leak, a
noise can be heard similar to air'leak-
ing.
3. A flame at-or around appliance pip-
ingother than at the burner indicates
leak age.

Q. The Fact That A "Rptten-Egg" Odor Is De-
tected, Does That Mean That There Is A
Natural Gas Leak?
A. No. But this. should be checked to assure
that the odor isn't an indication of a gas
leak. Call your gas company and report it.
Odors similar to that of natural gas may
come from the following:
1. A sewer system.
2. A water aeration plant which has a sul-
phur content.
3. Swamps or bogs.
4. Areas where the land has been filled,
etc.

Q. If There Is A Gas Leak, Will You Always
Smell An Odor?
A. No. If gas leaks from an above ground
pipe, there should always be .an odor.
However, when gas travels through the
ground, such as a leak from an
underground service line or main, the
ground acts as a filter and can remove the


odor from the gas.

Q. Why Isn't A Gas Odor Smelled When The
Gas Is Burned. On A Gas Range or Fur-
nace?
A. The material used to odorize the gas is
flammable and is consumed in the process
of burning. If your equipment is properly
adjusted you should not detect the odor
when you are using your appliances.

Q. What Can One Do to Reduce the Possibili-
ty Of An Accident?
A. First keep the emergency telephone
number of your gas company handy. A
good place to keep this number is to write
it down in the front of your telephone book
along with other emergency telephone
numbers such as fire, police, etc.
Other things which Should be done to im-
prove safety as well as conserve energy
are:
1. Teach children that they are not to play
with any appliances in the home.
2. Clean the burners and have them check-
ed for proper adjustment periodically.
3. Repairs, installations and removal of
appliances are jobs for qualified per-
sons. Use only qualified people to do
this work.
4.. If lighting of an appliance is required,
ALWAYS light match and hold at igni-
tion point of burner before you turn on
the gas.
5. Follow the manufacturer's instruc-
tionsfor operation and care of gas ap-
pliances.
6. Never take a chance. If you think you
smell gas, call your gas company.

Q. What Should Be Done When One Believes
He Smells Gas?
A. There are many possible conditions which
could be encountered, thus it isn't possi-
ble to give specific instructions for every
situation: The following examples provide
general instructions which should assist:


1. If a slight odor is detected in a localized
area or room of a building-do not use a
match or other flame in the area; call
the gas company immediately.
2. If a strong odor of gas is detected in a
building or other confined space-do
not operate electrical switches, light
matches or use an open flame;
however, do open windows and doors to
ventilate the area (caution: don't turn on
exhaust fans) leave the building and
call the gas company.
3. If a strong odor Is detected in a building
andlor a hissing sound is heard-do not
operate electrical switches, lights or
other devices; do evacuate the building
leaving exit doors open on your way out,
warn persons to stay clear of the
building and call the fire department
and gas company immediately from
another location.
4. If the odor of gas is detected outside (in
the yard, at the sidewalk, etc.)-im-
mediately call the gas company.

SAFETY IS YOUR BUSINESS. Educate
your family and friends about the precautions
to take when they believe they smell the odor
of gas.
